2012-2016 Volkswagen Passat Diesel Sedan

Mid-size Sedan

The Volkswagen Passat is a five-passenger car that is one of lowest prices ways to get a diesel motor in a large five-person sedan. The 2.0-liter turbo diesel can achieve rated at 31/43 mpg city/highway and can take the Passat nearly 650 miles between fill-ups. This economy combined with its sporty handling is likely why Consumer Reports recommends this sedan, and it received JD Power's Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) award.

Child Seat Anchors (LATCH) Ease of Use

Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) is a system of attachment hardware for child restraints. Although child restrainst can be installed properly by using vehicle safety belts, LATCH is intended to make the correct installation easier.

The LATCH ratings are an indicator of how easy it is to achieve a correct, tight installation of a child restraint in a given vehicle when using the dedicated child restraint attachment hardware. As long as a restraint is properly installed, the LATCH rating doesn’t have any bearing on safety.
